In an effort to cooperate with the order from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the outdoor ice skating rink at Campus Martius has closed. 

The ice rink at Campus Martius is closed temporarily due to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services' order to limit large gatherings, even outdoors.

The Downtown Detroit Partnership sent a media release Thursday afternoon the rink would close through the three-week order, which lasts through Dec. 8. 

"Downtown’s public spaces remain open, and continue to play an important and valuable role in our community’s overall well-being, including physical, social, and mental health," says the DDP statement. 

Reservations to skate at the outdoor rink, located in the city center in Campus Martius at 800 Woodward, are open for Dec. 9 and later at Walk-up sales will be available, but limited.
